Keg @ Friends of Ham, Leeds. A sumptuous double IPA with a well-blended mix of pine and caramel and nice, measured bitterness. Hope to meet this beer again one day.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, tropical fruits, and some citrus. Taste of citrus, resiny pine, tropical fruits, and light bitterness in the finish. The best DIPA that I’ve had from Victory.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Slightly hazy vibrant golden straw yellow with a thin white head. Definitley hoppy and devoid of much sweetness in the aroma, with grapefruit featuring mostly and some pine. Flavor is quite dry, hoppy, and get touches of onion and garlic at the end. Medium to lighter body. Not bad

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Radio Maria. Pale yellow body, moderate white head. Surprisingly light, with lemon peel and pine, but pretty low- key after having just finished Stone’s Enjoy By. This DEFINITELY suffers from direct comparison (any hoppy beer would).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one purest a darker yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was tropical and pinstripes hops, with very light toast and pale malt. Flavor was similar, pretty juicy and taste. Abv is hidden well. Better ipas are coming from victory!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice grapefruit, citrus, pine overtones to this taste. Aromas are very citrus. Clean crisp finish. Overall a refreshing brew. Perhaps a little better balance in the body flavor balance.

Very grassy hop profile, very victory... Pale golden color, smaller white head w nice lacing... Not excessively aromatic, fruitiness develops as it warms, dry finish...
